Under the regulations, MSDSs are not required. Our batteries are a fully-encased, manufactured item intended as an end-use product for customers. Therefore, batteries are not classified as a “hazardous chemical” and are not treated as such under the U.S. OSHA Hazardous Communications Rule. Batteries are considered “articles” within the meaning of 29 CFR Section 1910.1200(c), since they are formed to a specific shape or design during manufacture, have an end-use dependent upon their shape or design, and do not release or otherwise result in exposure to hazardous chemicals under normal conditions of use. Accordingly, an MSDS is not required.
